Default Hedgehogs legal in Rockland, Ontario??

I did a lot of research into whether or not hedgies are legal in my area, i'm about 45 minutes outside of Ottawa.

I've found out through various websites that only Windsor, Ontario does not allowed hedgehogs, and when I looked up laws on the Rockland website it brought me to the Ottawa laws, which said hedgehogs where illegal. I called to ask them if this means European hedgies but not AP Hedgehogs, but I have yet to get a call back. The only reason why I want to ask that question is because it says hedgehogs are illegal in quebec but they're actually only talking about the European ones.

So until I get an answer back, which who knows how long that will be, i was wondering if anyone from the neighborhood, if there really is anyone, knew at all.

I will be moving to Quebec anyways soon, as in january, and I already have a vet in Quebec that I am going to be seeing, but I also don't want anything bad to happen to my hedgehog when I get him or her in November.

THANK YOU!!

I replied to your pm but to answer your question about Quebec. From my understanding, all hedgehogs used to be illegal in Quebec but that changed many years ago. Perhaps what you are reading is old info.

I was also under the impression that it was only the immediate municipalities close to Ottawa that were included, Carleton Place, Nepean... I've never heard anything about Rockland.

I never heard hedgehogs were illegal in Ottawa? I have had Holden for over a year now, is this information actually true? Vets in Ottawa will take them and have never told me they are illegal.

Thank you for the information Nancy, it was extremely helpful. I remember reading the prohibited laws and it went something like "crocodiles, elephants, bears, poisonous snakes.... hedgehogs?? really??" lol it was weird.

lmg_319 I just sent you a response explaining everything just now, i was surprised as well. By the way which vet did you end up going to in Ottawa? The only one i could find was in quebec but the ottawa one would be closer for sure, unless its like kanata.
